The Honda Civic Type R was designed to epitomise the thrill of the modern sports car; built for sheer performance, using Honda’s unique racing DNA. Honda has pushed the boundaries in engineering and innovation to create an remarkable driving experience for those craving an adrenaline rush.
The bold, powerful exterior of the Civic Type R stimulates the car both aesthetically and practically. The distinctive wing spoiler, aluminium bonnet and front bumper/vents increase the aerodynamic performance through optimising airflow and generating down-force, whilst ensuring stability throughout. The rigid body frame and suspension allow for extra-sharp handling and increased power transfer to the road. The suspension system brings further benefit by stabilising braking and maximising driver control including All-New 20 inch Alloy Wheels, low build and a mean look with 245/30 ZR20 tyres fill the wheel arches perfectly. The LED lights add elegance and allow it to shine brightly at night, whilst the triple exhaust boosts high-rev acceleration and performance.
Its impressive interior design showcases the sporting features of the car – cushioned racing seats trimmed in suede-effect red and black fabric with red double stitching provide excellent support for sports driving and superior comfort with increased headroom, race car visibility and race shift gear stick - without compromising on comfort or space. This is evident with the class-leading 420 litres of boot space. The carbon fibre digital dashboard comprises a new 7” Honda CONNECT touchscreen which connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth or USB. This allows access to music, navigation, calls and messages when the time is right. The bespoke Type R steering wheel marries with the Integrated Meter Display - a sports display which features an LED gearshift indicator, boost pressure gauge, G-meter and lap time recorder.
